THE PERFECT WEDDING SHIRT FOR MEN
Getting married is one of the most important events in your life. We understand that you want to look your best on this day. It is a special day when you, pledge your love and commitment to your partner for the rest of your life. When planning a wedding, there are many important decisions to be made, including choosing your wedding outfit. For men, the wedding shirt is an important part of the outfit. In this article, we will go over the different types of wedding shirts, what to look for when choosing a wedding shirt and some tips to complete your outfit.
Types of men's wedding shirts
Ledûb offers several types of wedding shirts to choose from, including classic off-white shirts, shirts with contrast piping and button onsets, and shirts with small prints.
Classic off-white or ivory shirts are a popular choice for the groom because they are simple, stylish and timeless. They can be paired with different types of ties and suits, making them a versatile choice. The color of your wedding shirt is best matched with your partner's outfit!
Shirts with contrasting piping and button onsets are a bold choice for men looking for something unique. These ecru shirts have a colored piping at the button placket and button onset that matches the color of your suit. This makes for an interesting visual impact and can help draw attention to the groom's face.
Shirts with minimalist prints are a popular choice for weddings, not so much for the groom himself but all the more so for the guests. They can have stripes, plaids, flowers or other designs and can be a great way to add a festive touch to your outfit. It's important to remember that prints are generally bolder than solid colors, so it's a good idea to keep them subtle so they don't distract too much from the bride and groom.
What to consider when choosing a men's wedding shirt
When choosing a wedding shirt, there are several factors to consider. Here are some important considerations:
Fit - It is important to choose a shirt that fits well and is comfortable to wear. A shirt that is too big or too small can look sloppy and can also be uncomfortable to wear all day. A well-fitting shirt should be tight around the arms and shoulders, while still allowing sufficient freedom of movement. Ledûb offers men's wedding shirts in slim fit and modern fit fits.
Material - A wedding shirt should not only be beautiful, but also comfortable to wear. Therefore, choose a shirt made of breathable material, such as cotton or linen. These materials are light and airy and will prevent you from sweating on your wedding day. When buying a shirt, also make sure it fits properly. A shirt that is too tight can pinch and one that is too loose can look slouchy. All Ledûb wedding shirts are made of 100% cotton and are also iron-free. So you certainly don't have to worry about your shirt that day!
Color - A wedding shirt is usually off white, also called ivory. But there are also other colors to choose from, such as light blue or white. When choosing the color of your wedding shirt, it is important to consider the color of your wedding suit and the color of your tie. In addition, it is also important to coordinate with your partner's outfit. A white shirt goes with almost any color of wedding suit and tie. A light blue shirt looks good with a gray or light blue wedding suit and can be paired with a tie in a contrasting color, such as pink. A cream shirt goes well with a brown or beige wedding suit and can be paired with a tie in a warm color, such as burgundy.
Model - There are several models of wedding shirts to choose from. The most common model is the timeless shirt with a wide spread collar. This model suits almost any wedding style. When choosing the model, also make sure it fits your figure well. A shirt that is too wide can make you look slimmer, but can also look slouchy. A shirt that is too tight can pinch and can look unflattering.
Complete your wedding outfit with personalized details
Accessories can complete the look of your wedding outfit.If you are going for a traditional look, a tie is a good choice. A bow tie, combined with suspenders, can create a more modern look. It is important to make sure that the tie matches well with your shirt and suit. In addition to a tie, a pocket square is often used with a wedding outfit. A pocket square is a piece of fabric that is tucked into the breast pocket of your jacket/blazer. A pocket square adds extra elegance to your outfit and can also be used to accentuate the colour of the tie or bow tie. If you have a colour-themed dress code, it is also nice to choose these accessories in the corresponding colour.
The details of your wedding shirt make all the difference! For example, choose a shirt with a double cuff. This gives your outfit an extra chic look and can easily be personalised with a nice set of cufflinks. Cufflinks are small buttons/studs that are inserted into the shirt cuffs. They come in different styles and can be customised to suit your own taste. Cufflinks are therefore a fun way to show your personality in your outfit.
In addition, you could choose to have a nice text, initials or your wedding date embroidered into your wedding shirt or suit. These 'small' details probably won't be easily seen by others, but makes it extra fun for you as a bride and groom. When choosing details, make sure they match the rest of your outfit and are not too obvious.
What not to wear with a wedding shirt
Ledûb wedding shirts do not have a breast pocket. After all, on this important day, you don't need anything but each other and the people who are important to you around you. Besides, a "stuffed" breast pocket also looks sloppy. Personal items that you really like to have nearby on this day can be left with your master of ceremonies or witnesses.
As a groom, wearing a watch is also not appropriate. After all, time is not important on this special holiday. Enjoy the day and dance the night away!
